Cowslip is a cow? SUDDENLY IT ALL MAKES SENSE

But about T-shirts, you could easily commission an artist to draw something, and then have someone else print that on the T-shirt.  As far as I know, no "official" T-shirts have ever been released, from any adaptation :(

WELL, DUH. THAT'S WHY HE'S SO BIG.

Just get it on Redbubble.

Such a wasted opportunity...

Oh Country Charm delivers to Belgium! so tempted now to buy some mugs...

Quite some nice things on redbubble it seems.

Maybe I shoud try and get a custom T-shirt printed again. I tried it once before but the guy at the print shop basically laughed in my face and sent me away.

Redbubble seems like a nice site too. In some ways, fan merch can be better than the official one.

the guy at the print shop basically laughed in my face and sent me away.
That's nasty :(

He said something like that shop not being for kids non-business stuff or something. idk it was silly too 'cause students went there all the time.

That really is rude. Take your business elsewhere, I guess :/

hah exactly no money for him from me then!

I never bothered aain after that but now I feel like checking some other places out because a T-Shirt with Vervie and/or Orchis on it would be sweet :orchis

Jeez.
And over such a simple thing that plenty of places do. What a pretentious dick.

There's definitely online places where you can get custom t-shirts, stickers, mugs, you name it, like that.

They should make snares with Cowslip on them.
$13,000 dollars for one

Might as well if they are selling garden tools and other odd watership down themed things.
Oh! I got an idea! What if they sold a plush of cowslip with a real snare around his neck. It'd be a popular item for the kids.

My favorite mug is the one with wouldwort on it. Instead of personalizing it with someone's name, why don't they just have the character's name on it?

You guys have a point. When will they start selling items fans actually want. Id rather have a figure then a plate

I didn't know you could sell your own merchandise at redbubble. They have quite a few nice things on here.

Teepublic is a nice place to buy t shirts, and sometimes they will have a 30% off sale on everything.

I bought a shirt with this design on that site.

^ I used to know the person who made that design.

I'm not bothered by the bulk of it....... but I am really considering the close-up Clover or Hazel mugs! Shame Bigwig looks weird on his. The images on the other mugs are a bit small and a bit boring. At first I thought the plates were ornamental plates, and then realised they actually are good ol' plates you can eat your food off, and suddenly they look nicer for the job. :D
